Video Review of Stouffer’s Macaroni & Beef (Ep386)
Posted by: Gregory Ng: The Frozen Food Master
The Frozen Food Master is back with a brand new review. This time he is reviewing what most people affectionately call Beef-A-Roni but Stouffer’s calls Macaroni & Beef. This meal was only $1.99 but sure gave a decent quantity and a delicious aroma coming out of the microwave. It had a tangy tomato sauce, big pieces of beef and vine ripened tomatoes. But how will the Frozen Food Master rate it?
